A Week of Thirteens: Day Three

A Week of Thirteens

I have never claimed to be clever or original. However, 2013 is somewhat significant to me. As a result I came up with the idea of “A Week of Thirteens.

Day Three:    Thirteen Places I Would Love to Visit in 2013

1.       Mesa, Arizona

          (Stacy, my youngest daughter lives there)

2.        Spokane, Washington

           (I have been all over Northern, Western, Southern, and most of Eastern Washington over the past 25 years. I have never been to the city of Spokane)

3.       Applebees

          (for ribs)

4.       Winnemucca, Fallon, Fernly, Elko, NV; Cheyenne, WY

           (communities in Nevada or Wyoming I would like to visit and see if they might be a good place to live...)

5.       Modesto, CA

           (Visit my parents)

6.       George Jones Concert 

          (I would love to see the Possum live, but unfortunately all the shows are on the east coastand this is his Farewell Grand Tour)

7.       Gun Show

          (I am looking for a wheel-gun, .38 or .357)

8.       Clatskanie Rifle and Pistol Club

          (Clatskanie, OR – gun club Irene and I joined)

          (In order to order more books, I mean tools!)

          (in order to order more used and inexpensive books, I mean used an inexpensive tools)

11.     Red Lobster

          (Surf and Turf – Steak and Lobster Tails)

12.     Living Water Community Church, Vancouver, WA

          (Our former home church; we haven’t visited in awhile)

Fallon and Fernley are less than an hour away from where I should consider coming a bit further west to the Carson City/Carson Valley areas - great places to live.

..or, in lieu of that, great places to visit!

Disappointed that our little Mecca in Missouri isn't on your list. I thought everyone wanted to come here!

I also love the fact that when you start a list of places to visit, eating establishments make the list!

One place I would love to go: Elephant and Castle...Address of the Metropolitan Tabernacle. My daughter is going to London for Spring Break with her college choir and I tried to snag an invite, but so far, no good.

I didn't know that you were a Marine. Thank you for your service. By the way, I've been to Spokane, and there isn't much there. You should visit NC. Great BBQ, nice weather, good people, and a number of fine, Bible-believing churches.
